It seems at least one person has forgiven Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice for assaulting his fiancee. Namely, his fiancee, Janay Palmer.

Rice and Palmer got married over the weekend, despite a whirlwind of negative press surrounding the couple after Rice was arrested for assaulting Palmer during an incident in an Atlantic City casino last month.

Always a master of romantic timing, Ray Rice allegedly assaulted Palmer the day after Valentine's Day and the couple walked down the aisle just one day later.

The 27-year-old was formally indicted for the attack.

Rice and Palmer put a rush on their nuptials after his arrest, with Friday night's ceremony being planned only "a couple weeks earlier" according to a source.

The aggravated assault charge for which Rice was indicted on Thursday is more serious than the simple assault-domestic violence charge for which Rice was originally arrested.

Rachel Uchitel, formerly Tiger Woods' favorite hole (so to speak) is now dating MLB star Bret Boone ... and will be appearing on Bravo's Millionaire Matchmaker.

So surprising, and yet so totally not at the same time.

The former Seattle Mariners second baseman, 44, has four children and is separated from his wife. Believe it or not, they separated before he met her.

He hit .266 with 252 dingers and three all-star appearances in 14 big league seasons before rounding third base with Uchitel (we have to assume) this year.

In 2009, Uchitel played an instrumental role in breaking up Woods' marriage to Elin Nordegren. Prior to that, she had an affair with Bones star David Boreanaz.

She's recently divorced herself, from Matt Hahn.

Uchitel gave birth to their first child in May 2012; Hahn and Rachel split soon after and have battled for custody. Meanwhile, she and Boone are "serious."

In jarring NFL news, the Philadelphia Eagles released star wide receiver DeSean Jackson Friday, despite the 27-year-old turning in a career-best 2013 season.

The Eagles decided not to bring him back in 2014 not for financial or football reasons, but because of his alleged ties to gang members in Southern California.

The team's announcement came shortly after NJ.com published a report by Eliot Shorr-Parks and A.J. Perez that outlined the alleged connections of the NFL star.

According to the bombshell article, DeSean Jackson has ties to gang members in Los Angeles who have been connected to at least two homicides since 2010.

Citing unnamed sources, it reported that the Eagles were more concerned with Jackson's off-field relationships and behavior than with his on-field performance.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that the Eagles were aware of the alleged relationships in the report and opted to release Jackson rather than pursue a trade.

According to Schefter, "it got to the point where the Eagles knew not only about the revelations in that story, but they knew other information as well."

Pele is dead. At least one were to trust CNN, which many people understandably might given its (rapidly diminishing) reputation as a real news organization.

Fortunately for Pele, and unfortunately for CNN's future, he is alive and well.

The 74-year-old soccer legend is doing just fine despite a death hoax that gained steam on Friday and apparently duped the CNN show New Day.

And as a result, the network erroneously tweeted that Pele died (see below):

  • Pele Dead?
  • Pele Pic

A rep for Pele quickly shot down this “breaking” story and confirmed he's A-O-K.

A rep for CNN confirmed the network is going off the air in May. Just kidding!

Death hoaxes and false death rumors have always been around, but they've become 100 times common in the age of social media and declining journalism.

Just ask Pawn Stars' Chumlee or Wayne Knight in the past month alone.

Reeva Steenkamp, Oscar Pistorius

Oscar Pistorius' girlfriend told the South African athlete she was sometimes afraid of him, complaining that he had a short temper and was jealous.

All this in the weeks before he killed her in February 2013, according to phone messages revealed at the Oscar Pistorius murder trial on Monday.

"I'm scared of u sometimes and how u snap at me and of how u will react to me," Reeva Steenkamp texted him, police Capt. Francois Moller said.

In another message Steenkamp wrote: "I can't be attacked by outsiders for dating u AND be attacked by you, the one person I deserve protection from."

Moller said that from Steenkamp's phone he obtained more than 1,000 exchanges with Pistorius on WhatsApp and other phone messaging applications.

Moller cited as evidence two BlackBerry phones, two iPhones, two iPads and a Mac from Pistorius' house the day after he killed Reeva Steenkamp.

None of the 8.7 million entrants were still in the hunt to win Warren Buffett's $1 billion basketball challenge ... after the second day of the NCAA Tournament.

The famed investor promised $1 billion to anyone who could fill out the perfect bracket - every game, from start to finish - in this year's tournament.

He won't be sweating it out even on the first weekend.

Buffett

After a single game on the NCAA March Madness tournament's first day, when Dayton upset Ohio State, more than 80 percent of hopefuls were out.

Mercer's win over Duke Friday finished off almost everyone else.

Three players with perfect brackets remained early Friday night, but after the late games, the standings showed no one in the running for the big prize.

It took just 25 games for every single person to be eliminated.
